"Stopping the 'bleeding' of high carat gold through rhodium plate"





April 14, 2010

How do you stop the bleeding, i.e., the long term color transfer of yellow gold (22k and higher using Cu and Ag alloy) through a Rhodium plate. Is it advisable to Ni plate the yellow gold first before Rd plating?
Thanks.

Hi, Simon. You can't nickel plate jewelry for sale in Europe, but you could white bronze plate it. But yellow gold should not be rhodium plated, only white gold.
